Sæby Havn

Northern Jutland

The photogenic, yacht-filled harbour is home to fish-peddling restaurants and ice-cream kiosks. For those disappointed with the physical size of the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, Sæby’s symbol of protection, the Lady from the Sea statue, has presence and stature. It’s based on Henrik Ibsen’s play of the same name, which he wrote after a summer spent in and around Sæby.
